Cats pamper kitten with purrs
You know what they say: It takes a village. But does that apply to kittens? As it happens, when it comes to tiny Miss Evelyn, the saying couldn’t be more true. Evelyn was born incontinent because of an underdeveloped hind end. She has Manx syndrome – a condition caused by the same gene that gives cats stubby tails. As a result, she lost her home and ended up at a shelter where she almost lost her life.
At the Sanctuary, this blue-eyed bundle of fur was embraced by not only her caregivers, but all her new kitty roommates. Evelyn is never far from one of her doting feline friends (many of whom have similar medical conditions) and the snuggle sessions are intensely cute. The older cats engage her in playtime and cuddles, and there’s always someone on standby with a sandpapery tongue to fix her fur when it’s a bit ruffled up. They’ve fully taken Evelyn under their paws, and she is thriving, pampered in purrs.
The little kitten who so needed a second chance and a whole lot of love got the softest of landings. (And we cannot express how adorable her sweet village really is.)
